Accordions and Glass Clock Faces Vintage Bracelet
The accordion faces and clock faces are pre-WWII vintage Czech glass. They are all etched with some kind of Czech gold tone paint. For my handmade jewelry, I often buy 24K gold paint kiln annealed spacer beads from the Czech Republic, so I know the Czechs know how to work with glass and gold paint in the most beautiful and least expensive ways I've ever seen. I would put money on betting that the etched designs have real gold in the paint.
The bracelet band is old, too, and it doesn't take much looking to recognize that fact.
Women used to be thinner fifty or sixty years ago, so it isn't strange that the bracelet is only seven inches when closed. I have gold tone rings that I can fashion into a chain of a length you might desire to add another inch or two to your blue and white and gold tone item. On the other hand, women are getting thinner again, and many have requested seven inch bracelets from me. It might be fine just as it is.
If you know a lady accordionist (or the wife of a male accordionist)(she'd likely be in her sixties or seventies) she would LOVE to receive this as a gift. I know. I'm a lady accordionist. For a year now I've been telling you about all my very separately themed collections. I never told you that I kind of binged on accordions over a three year period about fifteen years ago and have eleven accordions. Oh, wait, I gave Norman permission to give all but five of them to Goodwill before his final trip up here to Georgia. At least we can write them off for taxes. I'll whittle what's left of my collection down to three when I'm ready: One for Norman, one for me, and one for Hannah. We are an anachronistic family, because we all play the accordion. Hannah took two years of weekly accordion lessons beginning when she was six. At eight she graduated to six years of piano.
If there is anything else about the bracelet (or my love of Eastern European culture and gypsy accordion) you'd like to know please feel to email me.
I used to be friendly with Myron Floren (the Accordion Man from the Lawrence Welk Show of old). Once he told me a joke: "I went into a diner to get a piece of pie and worried the whole time about my accordion that I'd left in the car. Would it be stolen? When I went back to my car it was clear someone had broken into it. Two doors were opened and the windshield had been demolished." "Oh NO.. What happened?" "There were six more accordions in the car along with the one you just saw me playing for the show. They didn't take it. The people broke in to my car to get rid of their pre-guitar teenage accordions." Ha Ha. Myron thought it was funny. I didn't. I was too in love with the accordion at that time. Now I think it's funny.
I'm mail this bracelet to you as soon as a receive payment for it: The same day or the next.
